The conditions necessary for the production and activities of extracellular enzymes of thermophilic fungi obtained from tobacco products were determined. While amylases were produced in extractable amounts by all the fungi used in this study, extracellular cellulases were produced only by Chaetomium thermophile La Touche, Humicola insolens Cooney and Emerson, Malbranchea pulchella Sacc. et Penzig var. sulfurea (Miehe) Cooney and Emerson, and Mucor pusillus Lindt. A narrow range of pH 6–7 was… CONTINUE READING
